Nicely done Lenny. But one slight factual correction. You wrote: “ As someone who led the campaign 15 years ago for a Constitutional Convention initiative in California…” Yikes, it wasn’t 15 years ago that we did that! Try more like 2009–2010, when we wrote the ballot initiative, held forums around the state with BAC, etc. Your own HuffPost piece at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lenny-mendonca/california-needs-to-press_b_434984.html is dated in 2010. I’m not getting that old that fast!
Besides that, thanks for a provocative piece.
